Visiting international racer Remo Ruscitti told Bernews, “I was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and am currently 21 years old racing in my 13th season. I am very fortunate to add driving the Italkart brand here in Bermuda, adding to a number of locations like Europe and throughout North America.

“As I still drive gokarts as much as I can, my kart season has been somewhat limited this year fulfilled by car racing where I ran in the Tudor United Sports Car Championship, Rolex 24Hrs of Daytona in January and have been competing in the Continental Tire Sport Car Championship both which run out of North America.

“For the past couple of years Italian Motors USA and the Factory Italkart team have been attempting to make the long trip out here to Bermuda and it is very cool to finally be here and have been able to check out some of the beaches and cool sights this amazing Island has to offer with one of our head mechanical directors Kris Rodal.

“We have both been welcomed from the Corrado, Lewis families and Bermuda Kartng club with open arms and are very grateful to be able to run this weekend in the first race of the season. Thank you to Italian Motors USA & the Valiante family for this opportunity and to my family whom have supported me since the first day I began my racing career.”
